Tamera Mowry will not let the memory of her slain niece be forgotten and has posted another heartwarming tribute to her on Instagram.
"Missing you every day. I often do a double take at women that remind me of you! The pain of how you were taken from us comes back. I randomly envision hearing your voice and holding Aden and Ariah’s hands like you did," she captioned the post which shared a close up picture of her late niece smiling into the camera.
"I wish you were here to see my children grow, and for us to see the woman you were to become. I’ll have to accept we have a warrior of an angel watching over us now. Love you. #AlainasVoice #MyAngel" she wrote.
In response to her moving tribute, Tamera’s husband Adam Housley wrote in the comments of his wife’s post, “This breaks my heart every day. Every second of every day.”
Mowry-Housley previously remembered her late niece in December of last year, just over a month after her death.
“Yesterday you were supposed to come home,” she wrote on Instagram. “The questions of why consume my mind. But I must hold on to the fact that our Lord is sovereign. The reality of you not being here hits stronger today. I miss your giggles, I miss your smile, I miss the way you would roll your eyes when you heard someone say something crazy.”
Aliana Housley, 18, was a college freshman at Pepperdine University and was among the 12 people killed when a gunman opened fire at Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Since the tragedy, Mowry has been rallying for stricter gun laws.
